Happy Birthday To Me!!

It turns out it’s my birthday today and I almost forgot about it! I’m a whole 37 years old and I can’t believe how close to 40 I am! I feel like I’ve achieved quite a lot in life so far but at the same time, there’s still so much I’d love to do and experience with the family.


I’ve decided that I’d write a little 40 before turning 40 list, of things to do and what I think I can do in 3 years. Today I want to share that list with you and of course, keep you updated with posts as I tick each thing off my list, this has me so excited. I’ve been working on this list since about January on and off trying to find things I’d love to do, I also understand that some of them probably won’t be the same with the whole COVID situation going on but these are the things I’d love to do.
